It sounds like you are really committed to being a wholesaler.

Can I suggest that the best way for you to get the knowledge, skills, contacts and experience you are looking for is to go and work for someone for a while who is excellent at doing what you want to do.

This way, you will have an opportunity to get to know the wholesaling business and decide what area you want to be in and what you learn will be invaluable in making your business successful when you do start it. And, you'll get paid!

Good luck!
